Sensible 4PDT switch

Hey, I am looking for a 4PDT switch (board mount) that is usable. I ordered some of these switches ( https://www.digikey.com/products/en?keywords=679-1858-ND ) which are exactly what I want EXCEPT that the actual slide switch is super short and it will not reach the panel (its about 7.5 mm tall). The part needs to be a little over a centimeter tall to even reach the panel, much less protrude from it a reasonable amount.

I know that I can just use an SPST switch with a switching IC to approximate the behavior but I have a few designs where this switch would come in particularly handy and so I want to find a mechanical switch that does this. Before I go diving into the parts space I figure that I would ask here and see if anyone has found a good switch that does what I need here.

Thank you!

Not currently in stock, might be able to find it somewhere else.

I found this which looks like it will work, I can report back when I get some in case someone searches and comes across this topic.
